Nobody likes em, poor little buggers! Ticks are a concern at a few of the areas around Revelstoke. Thankfully, they are present here only during a short season in the spring which generally lasts from sometime in April to around the first week of June. So the good news is that they're almost gone for the season!
They seem to prefer to live on south facing, craggy areas where a mountain goat (their food) community lives. The known tick areas are Victor Lake Wall, Lauretta Slabs, Three Valley Gap and Eagle Pass Boulders. You may also encounter them on the Silvertip Trail but the crag itself is usually tick free due to it's cooler location.
The good news is that as far as is known, we do not have the species of tick here that are carriers of Lyme Disease. Of course, little is known on this subject and things can change. For more info on ticks, visit the links below.
